How to play Connections
In Connections, a grid containing 16 words will be displayed. Your goal is to organize these words into four sets of four by identifying the connections between them. These sets could encompass concepts such as video game franchise titles, book series sequels, shades of red, restaurant chain names, etc.
There are usually words that seem like they could fit multiple themes, but there is only one 100% correct answer. You can shuffle the grid of words and rearrange them to better see potential connections.
Each group is color coded. The yellow group is the easiest to understand, followed by the green, blue and purple groups.
Choose four words and press Submit. If you are correct, all four words will be removed from the grid and the theme that connects them will be revealed. Guess wrong and it will count as a mistake. You only have four mistakes available until the end of the game.
